hello and a very warm welcomes are arts and culture news and here's what's coming up in the next 15 minutes. d.w. music documentary deconstruct brahms and brings us closer to the members of the orchestra. the. me here in berlin has been digging in its vaults to find work i neglected female artists. but 1st the western german city of bon is the high much home town of lewd fig fun beethoven he was born in 1717 and spent the 1st 22 years of his life in the city next year is a very special beethoven year in bonn as it's the 250th anniversary of the great
4:03 am
man's buff and there's lots going on that every year there's a beethoven fest bach beethoven 2020 is much more than that indeed the whole year is so packed with all sorts of events that celebrations have spilled over into this year kind of already on the way. now friday so all the opening of a special walking tour in and around bonn featuring all the important places where bait have malls on the line from the burka the artistic director the entire beethoven 2020 year welcome to the program 1st of all beethoven 2020 gets underway officially at the end of this year and of course stretches of the whole of next year the 1st visible project is this walking sort of tour so 1st of all that could you tell us a little bit about that. of course thank you we believe in bonn that you can't get
4:04 am
very close to be too often here it's bit of a spur plays and you can follow the footsteps that the young beethoven took in bonn and today we launched. a kind of city walk along the science that related to be it's often linked to be too often and each of these sides you find information panels that explain this pacific link and this is very important for bond to position itself as the beethoven city. yeah actually his 3 if i may say so has been a bit unkind to bomb he was born there and spent the 1st 22 years of his life there that very formative years of his life but he's always associated with van of vienna so is beethoven 2020 kind of trying to redress the balance a bit. well don't intend this to rewrite history of course the time that
4:05 am
you spent in vienna was very important and he composed all the big works in vienna but you're right the 1st 22 years were very formative for him to grow up to develop. themselves as a musician and as a personality and we believe that it is good to focus not only on the old step grimm itself but also on the young composer aspired to change something he was a kind of game changer and it's very interesting to deep into the early years when he experienced the french revolution for instance 789 in bonn and all the context around it. can you give us a taste of the year i know there are literally hundreds of events going on but perhaps you could tell us about a few of the highlights that you already know that. yes it's a big cut show festival with more than 300 projects they're all. related to
4:06 am
bonn or in the region off bond and the main idea that it's all ties together is that we offer and invites new approaches to discover be too often a new so it's more than just concerts there are many exhibitions going on the central exhibition of the anniversary year will be at the national review which is based in bonn. and we will have we will have conferences open air cons and new films that will be shown on cinema so really it's a it's a very colorful culture of festival throughout the year and it's worth coming to bonn throughout the full full festival. i just want to mention the website actually on your lapel it's all must see it because the website is beethoven 2020 that's beethoven with the vowels. bt yes i've got it right this is
4:07 am
actually a story behind this very briefly if you could tell his bait almost invented this little guy. yes he was a very visionary guy and i think he did. what people today even in the times of twitter and as some as like to do is skipping out the worlds to get short texts indeed he signed his own autographs. like this we don't know whether it was just for work efficiency but once you realize that it's for beethoven you would always recognize it again and. we thought for a logo of this year this is just very suitable and it gives an impression of the anusia personality that he was most a burka thank you for that we all look forward to next year we'll all be down in bonn and anybody listening from around the world hopefully they'll come to bonn at some point in the year thank you very much thank you so much and now another great
